You Cried Wolf Too Many Times!

A major conservative political strategy is the tried and trusted FUD approach. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt. And they’ve been very effective over the years using that strategy. They’ve scared people into voting their way.

They told us Social Security was going to destroy America. They told us Medicare was going to destroy America. They told us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. They told us that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was going to bankrupt and destroy America. And now they tell us that if we negotiate with Iran they are going to get to a nuclear weapon faster.

Right! None of these other predictions were true (they are strangely silent on the CBO report that the ACA will save yet another $142B over the next decade and cost 29% less in the 2015 to 2019 timeframe). Why should we expect this to also be true?
